I am more and more convinced that our happiness or unhappiness depends far more on the way we meet the events of life, than on the nature of those events themselves.

Wilhelm von Humboldt

I guess what I'm trying to say is, I don't think you can measure life in terms of years. I think longevity doesn't necessarily have anything to do with happiness. I mean happiness comes from facing challenges and going out on a limb and taking risks. If you're not willing to take a risk for something you really care about, you might as well be dead.

Andrew Schneider

I'll say it again, for every moment you're with the wrong person, you are robbing yourself and the right person of the opportunity to find real happiness.

Ingrid Weir

If my heart can become pure and simple like that of a child, I think there probably can be no greater happiness than this.

Kitaro Nishida

If you are looking for Happiness, never look for it in the place where you lost it in the first place. There are many other better places to choose from. Be smart, and you'll be happy.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Intelligence is the airport; will power is the airplane; man is the passenger and happiness is the destination!

Mehmet Murat ildan

Interesting aspect of human psyche is that we are, deep inside, not afraid of our inadequacies. Our deepest and innermost fears are surprisingly associated with our own abilities and powers. It is our light that often dazzles us, and frightens us to the core, than our darkness. Paradoxical as it may seem, many people get concerned, deep inside and not outwardly, for being perceived as brilliant, beautiful, genius, talented, gorgeous and extraordinary. When we realize and accept that we all are God's creations, and that we all carry the same divine spark within us, all our deepest fears disappear, either of our abilities or of our inadequacies.....and then there is no more darkness, but the shimmering bright light of happiness and equality all along.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Lover scuttles his body, because he sinks in happiness. (L'amoureux saborde son corps, - Car il coule dans le bonheur.)

Charles de LEUSSE

Make enthusiasm a way of life. Make optimism a way of success. Make gratitude a way of happiness.

Debasish Mridha, M.D.

Man is the artificer of his own happiness.

Henry David Thoreau

Money doesn't always bring happiness. People with ten million dollars are no happier than people with nine million dollars.

Hobart Brown

Money never made a man happy yet, nor will it. There is nothing in its nature to produce happiness. The more a man has, the more he wants. Instead of its filling a vacuum, it makes one. If it satisfies one want, it doubles and trebles that want another way. That was a true proverb of the wise man, rely upon it; "Better is little with the fear of the Lord, than great treasure, and trouble therewith."

Benjamin Franklin

My philosophy, in essence, is the concept of man as a heroic being, with his own happiness as the moral purpose of his life, with productive achievement as his noblest activity, and reason as his only absolute.

Ayn Rand

O Winter ruler of the inverted year, . . . I crown thee king of intimate delights, Fireside enjoyments, home-born happiness, And all the comforts that the lowly roof Of undisturb'd Retirement, and the hours Of long uninterrupted evening, know.

William Cowper

Our happiness or misery depends upon our perception, not on the situation.

Debasish Mridha, M.D.

Peace is a child's beautiful smile and a flower's freshness. Peace is an inner perception of joyfulness and happiness.

Debasish Mridha, M.D.

Realize that true happiness lies within you. Waste no time and effort searching for peace and contentment and joy in the world outside. Remember that there is no happiness in having or in getting, but only in giving. Reach out. Share. Smile. Hug. Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself.

Og Mandino

Remember that there is an abundance of happiness that can be found in the smallest of places."

Steve Maraboli

Seek not happiness too greedily, and be not fearful of happiness.

Lao Tzu

Smile: Happiness Is Right Under Your Nose!

Mary Anne Puleio

Success is the moon and happiness is moonlight.

Debasish Mridha, M.D.

The fountain of content must spring up in the mind, and he who hath so little knowledge of human nature as to seek happiness by changing anything but his own disposition, will waste his life in fruitless efforts and multiply the grief he proposes to remove.

Samuel Johnson

The happiest people are those who think the most interesting thoughts. Those who decide to use leisure as a means of mental development, who love good music, good books, good pictures, good company, good conversation, are the happiest people in the world. And they are not only happy in themselves, they are the cause of happiness in others.

William Lyon Phelps

The hatred we bear our enemies injures their happiness less than our own.

J. Petit-Senn
